“Following the lessons from Covid-19 pandemic, companies are turning to technology for different purposes, at Little innovation is at the core of our work and we are filling in by providing a one-stop platform for different services,” Budhabhatti said.

“We have upgraded the Little App from just offering the ride-hailing services to a one-stop-shop now addressing different challenges companies face, the added features are a plus to our over 1,200 customers and others aspiring to join us,” he added.
